ACCUSED REQUESTING PART OF SAMPLE

An offer to supply a blood sample coupled with an accused pointing to the sample that she wanted did not amount to a “request” for such a sample within the meaning of s 15(5) Road Traffic Offenders Act 1988. A sample of blood had been “supplied” to the appellant in these circumstances despite the accused failing to physically take hold of it or collect it prior to leaving the police station.
